She's turned out 24/7 in an almost two acre pasture, by herself, but we don't have much grass. She grazes on what we have, but I doubt its of high quality. You're right, she loves being turned out instead of being in a run-in shed with a small turn out, and seems much more relaxed.
I looked into calf manna before. I might try it at some point. Right now I have Kenzie on 4 lbs Nutrena Mare and Foal, 5 lbs straight alfalfa pellets, we're working up to 2 lbs beet pulp, and 3/4 cup of DuMor UltraShine suppliment. She has free choice costal hay as well. She has a lot of making up to do though and was a good 150 lbs or more underweight when we got her, and very small for her age. She's 12.3hh at the wither now and weighs about 400 lbs according to a weight tape, and still needs at least 20 lbs... but she was 12.2hh and only about 275 lbs! O_O
